I trust Donald Trump’s experience, and he really understands money!
Donald Trump knows how to negotiate:
Nothing irritates me more than a politician getting in front of me and laying out a “simple” plan for something that Albert Einstein would struggle to understand. The echoes through the halls of congress ringing “I have a 5 point plan that will fix everything” are ridiculous.
I catch myself talking to my smartphone saying “No, No, No you don’t have a plan, you have a list of priorities, you Idiot! …and by the way, you just told everyone how to beat you! Great job you failed before you ever got started!!!”
Donald Trump has been very careful and guarded with his plans and priorities. Some of his plans and priorities are published while some of his plans and priorities are “off the record”. That tells me he is a smart negotiator.
I won’t pretend to have the business ability of Donald Trump, but I know enough about basic negotiation to know that you cannot come to the table with a list of demands and expect to walk away pleased. When you go to a car dealer and make the mistake of telling them you can afford $300.00 a month, you are guaranteed to leave paying $399.99 a month only to go home and ask yourself where you will come up with the other $99.99 a month.
You have to keep your most valuable things off the table and know the other side will always, ALWAYS, push you beyond what they think you are willing to do. Once your most valuable items are on the table, you have lost.
Once the other side knows what you will settle for, they will push you just over the line and get more than they should. You have to keep your priorities close and your plans even closer. Donald Trump gets it and his record shows us a man who knows how to negotiate.
He is crazy enough to do the unthinkable and they know he is not alone:
We have all seen the articles that say “Donald Trump has been bankrupt 4 times.” When you see those reports, do you ask yourself how a billionaire could have ever gone bankrupt? I do, and the answer is in the details of those bankruptcies. In an early debate Donald Trump said something like “I know how to make good deals… …sometimes you buy into a bad deal, chapter it, and turn it into a good deal.”
Donald Trump gets it, he has used the current laws to buy a failing business very cheap and then take that business through the legal bankruptcy process and make it profitable. That is what a “chapter” is. It is a legal process that allows a company to meet with its creditors and say “We are broke and we cannot pay you, but if you lower your interest rate, reduce our debt, or make other things happen we will do right by this debt and everyone gets something out of the deal, we really want to pay you but we need your help, if not, here are the keys to the building, Good Luck!“
Bankruptcy is a tool for businesses and people. When Donald Trump said “chapter” he was talking about the legal process he used to restructure the debt of those companies he bought cheap. He then turned them around and in some cases sold for a profit. Bankruptcies are often used to keep people employed instead of closing the business entirely, pay back a creditor at a lower interest rate or over a longer period of time and so on.
In most cases, creditors know things will get better because there is a judge involved who will oversee the entire process. Also, once a bankruptcy has been filed that business cannot file again in 7 years so the creditor will get paid. Creditors in some cases will force a company to file bankruptcy in order to protect their assets.
Once a bankruptcy is finished that business is really on the hook, there is no escaping the deals that they made with their creditors, it does or dies. If you take the time to research every one of the businesses that Donald Trump bought and then “chaptered” you will see that everyone walked away with a good deal. Everyone was treated fairly and Donald Trump made back the money he invested with a little extra on top. He took a no-win situation and made a good deal for everyone.
Donald Trump has owned, bought, sold, traded, opened and closed thousands of businesses in his lifetime and he has only used Bankruptcy 4 times. The fact that he has only used it 4 times is extremely impressive when we consider that most companies seem to stay in business after they file bankruptcy and good products never die.
Our government has tremendous power over our creditors and those creditors know Donald Trump is crazy enough to do the same thing to them. I believe that is why the establishment is attacking him so hard. The uncertainty of what he might do should scare our nations creditors, but it should not scare us, because Donald Trump is an American and he will put America first.
If he hurts America he hurts himself. But, remember he only did this with 4 businesses out of thousands that he has been involved with. Will Donald Trump bankrupt America? I don’t think we are that bad off yet, BUT I would love to be a fly on the wall when he sits down with China and says “Well we could just default on those loans and then what will you do?”
If our establishment believes he is crazy enough to do it, the Chinese do too, and in reality, he might be crazy enough to do it. That is the power of keeping your plans and priorities to yourself. His willingness to do what needs to be done is scary I admit, but honestly what other option do we have?
As long as our nation is in debt up to our eyeballs, we are slaves to our debtors and China holds a lot of that debt. We need a real negotiator willing to buy into our bad deal and do whatever it takes to make it a good deal for everyone involved, Donald Trump is that man!
John F Kennedy wanted to deal with the debt problem as well. Kennedy wanted to abolish the Federal Reserve, and we see how that turned out. The difference between Kennedy and Trump is there are probably about 3 million military veterans willing to take up arms and defend our nation against all aggressors foreign and domestic.
If we are attacked like we were attacked when Kennedy was assassinated, I am afraid twitter might not be the only thing blowing up. If he is crazy enough to do the unthinkable, there are a lot of people ready to do the unthinkable to support him especially if they think the Constitution is under attack!
He understands what “Currency Manipulation” really is and what we have to do to fix it:
Donald Trump has repeatedly talked about how the United States is getting a bad deal on trade. He talks about it every time he has a chance. We have all heard him say “We have a 550 Billion dollar trade deficit with China and a 58 Billion dollar trade deficit with Mexico”.
Did you ever take the time to think about the reason we have that deficit? If you were paying attention you noticed that he says “they manipulate their currency”. What does that mean, “manipulate their currency”?
In order to understand currency manipulation, we have to look at our history and learn who the first person and country were to use currency manipulation. The answer to that question is Abraham Lincoln and it was the Union.
Abraham Lincoln literally invented currency manipulation because of the civil war. Abraham Lincoln went to the nation’s creditors and ask them to borrow money for the war effort and he was told it would cost us 24% to 30% interest. That is when Lincoln used the power of the Constitution to protect our nation. He created the “greenback”.
Enter the “the greenback”! Lincoln said NO, I won’t pay your interest we are a sovereign nation and we have the ability to create our own currency according to the Constitution. …and that he did, he printed $400,000,000.00 (400 million dollars) worth of greenbacks and paid for the war effort.
For all intents and purposes, you could say Lincoln “bankrupted” the United States by creating money out of thin air. Lincoln used the law to avoid paying unfair interest, much like the legal process of bankruptcy. Some years later Congress commissioned a study to determine how much money we saved and it was learned that Lincoln saved our country over 4 Billion dollars in interest to the banks.
After the assassination of Lincoln and a few decades of lobbying and good ole’ boy politics, the Federal Reserve was born in 1913. BUT his greenbacks were only interest-free for a few years before it was all rearranged to make sure the banks were getting their “interest” on our currency.
Currency manipulation is the printing of money with nothing to back it up and no interest being paid to the bank! Today the “Fed” a private institution has tremendous power given to them by politicians in 1913. Some say that power is enough to kill for, but my only question is why should we the people pay interest to a bank if we have the power to coin currency?
Some of the other countries don’t have that problem. Those countries don’t have to hide the fact that the ruling class puts themselves first. It is called communism where everything is controlled by the ruling class.
They can and do print as many greenbacks as they like and the more they print, the less valuable their currency becomes. That causes their currency to be “devalued”. I won’t get into the crazy conspiracy theories that Lincoln was assassinated by the bankers, but it seems odd to me that the only two Presidents who every beat the bankers ended up dead.
The big difference between Lincoln, Kennedy, and Trump is this: Trump lives in a country where at least 75 million armed citizens can depend on him to protect their right to bear arms and right to freely express themselves. We have the ability to exchange information at light speed and that should scare the daylights out of whoever would want to hurt our President or soon to be President!
God help everyone at the Fed should something happen to Donald Trump. So many people have access to unfiltered information. There are several hundred million citizens who are armed with smartphones and other necessities ready to get to business protecting their rights. I think those in power already know that some Americans are crazy enough to do the unthinkable to protect themselves, especially when they feel they have nothing left to lose!
I have never been so concerned about the stability of our nation, but we have a mess to clean up and Donald Trump is the man to do it. Thank God Obama scared so many Americans into buying a stockpile of weapons and ammo, at least he did one thing right.
Please keep our nation in your prayers…
